Dancing the Ten Thousand Things: Channeling Qi Energy for Any Creative Act led by Peggy Choy

DANCING THE TEN THOUSAND THINGS: Channeling Qi Energy for Any Creative Act

A workshop with choreographer/dancer Peggy Choy that explores notions of breath as a potent focus of the mind, and “writing” with the body.

Choy is interested in a process of interrogating current dance notions of hybridity and fusion. Having grown up in Hawai‘i, where colonial occupation bumps up against cultural diversity from a plantation past, dance is her tool to re-position Asian movement and martial arts in a global landscape, and to question what it means to be a Korean American woman creating in a conflictive and unstable world.
